Regarding NFC Reader/Writer

Forum / MIFARE general topics and applications / Regarding NFC Reader/Writer

    We are using tablets which doesn't have built-in NFC. Is there any NFC Reader/Writer which provides authentication for Mifare Ultralight C NFC Cards? or is there any solution for this? Currently, we are using ACR122U NFC Reader which doesn't provide authentication of Mifare Ultralight C NFC Cards

    Hi Ankit,

    The authentication for the MIFARE Ultralight C is described in section 7.5.5 of the datasheet. In this sequence you send two times a byte sequence to the reader and get two times a sequence back. It could be that a reader manufacturer implement this in the driver and offer a “convenience function” for easy using. I cannot say anything about reader implementations.

    But you can implement this in your software. All you need is a “Triple DES” library. On desktop system this is always available, e.g.: BCrypt on Windows or OpenSSL on Linux. If you use a microcontroller you must implement the DES algorithm by yourself. But you will find a lot of Open Source implementations which you can use.

    Thanks for your quick response.

    It would be great if you can provide any of the Open Source implementations so that we can use that.
